Hello everyone. Dr. Lell here. I enjoy teaching and educating and am really looking forward to blogging as a means of reaching out to anyone with a question or interest.

Good quality supplements are clinically effective and useful, especially as a natural alternative to prescription drugs. But just like everything else, there’s quality and there’s crap. Don’t let the poor examples speak for the bunch.
The body does such a good job at telling the story that when I take a patient's chief complaint history, I just keep quiet and let the patient explain things in their own words after prompting them with a few questions that force them to look within and pay attention.

No. In Oregon, Chiropractors are primary care physicians and you do not need a referral or pre-approval to make an office visit.
